The Full Moon in Aquarius (Sun in Leo, Moon in Aquarius) takes place on 18 August 2016, at 9:26 GMT in 25° 51′ Aquarius.
“Once more, love is pouring down my ceiling and my walls. Once more, it is the night of the full moon, it is time for madness. All my immense knowledge cannot help me now.” writes the Persian mystic Rumi.
The Aquarius full moon is an ideal time for multidimensional leaps and most daring enterprises connecting our ordinary reality with parallel universes, the earth with the starry sky, the characters we play in life and the true identities of the actors who play them. It teaches to open the heart and allow true love to pour down, shedding light on all aspects of life, especially those who appear most extreme. It promotes the release of conflicts, filling the gap between polarities with love and light.
The full moon in Aquarius is a dynamic and extremely thrilling moment, portraying the major elements of the power struggles between polarities, while also holding the climax and fulfilment of the original state of unity.
The key of this full moon in Aquarius is exemplified by the Epic of the Holy Grail, and the parallel Epic of the Sacred Cone, the search for our multidimensional identity and its fragmented pieces, which is the quest for who we really are. As a result, the energy of Leo and Aquarius combined bring light both into what has already been accomplished in terms of identity – i.e. the understanding you have of yourself, including the gifts you bring to, and receive from, the world, and also your family and tribal consciousness – and into the awareness of the longing for essential missing parts.
This reawakens the spirit of the quest, which implies provisionally leaving what is familiar in order to explore long forgotten territories and retrieve a wider definition of who we are. Here, this Full Moon highlights the multi-dimensional perspective and the rebellious shift of consciousness that brings true change. It is a process we carry out cyclically in our lives.
We forsake the security of our tribe and depart for an extensive voyage. Then, after all kinds of challenges and enterprises, we return, sharing the gifts we have acquired with the original tribe, connecting our individual journey with the collective. At this stage, time is needed to integrate the new with the old, to help it ground and serve the environment, to receive a blessing from one’s tribe and regain full citizenship. Next, we may leave again on a further quest.
Full Moons inevitably confront with the sphere of relationships and whatever has remained unconscious in that domain. One element to bear in mind is that relationships are unavoidable. Hence, in this context, “being in a relationship” is inescapable and cannot be identified as an intention.
We are all involved in relationships, whether we are aware of it or not, and what truly counts is defining the intent of such relationships, i.e. what are we actually doing together? If you are choosing to be in a relationship merely because you do not like to be alone, your intent becomes “being in a relationship”, which proves that you are missing the whole perspective. If, on the other hand, you acknowledge the relationships you are already in and consciously decide to use them for a specific intent, you move into a completely different paradigm. As a result, new relationships can develop and old ones can transform themselves.
Here, we indeed release the encoding of our separated reality and enter into the gateway to our core multidimensional identity. The full moon in Aquarius deeply resonates with this shift of awareness, stimulating revolutionary changes and promoting major healing innovations in the field of relationships.
